PHOTOS OF REAL CASES IN CATS
Surfers' Girl Tips for Animal Lovers - CLICK HERE
|1. Uterine prolapse in a stray cat. After giving birth, the womb (uterus) fell out of the body and gets infected as the cat licked it, trying to get rid of it. A cat lover brought it to the Surgery for some drug injection hoping this will cure the problem. Cat immediately operated. This case was reported in "Real Cases" section too.|
|2. Uterine prolapse cat. The ovaries and uterus were removed. As cat was young, it survived and recovered.|
|3. Uterine prolapse cat. Fully recovered and had put on weight now according to good Samaritan woman who brings stray cats for treatment. In Singapore, public housing (Housing Development Board or HDB apartment) owners are not allowed to keep cats. Some do keep as many as 20 cats.|
|4. Fish bone in throat of cat. Cat presented with signs of pain in throat, not eating and "trying tovomit" something. Some cases need general anaesthetic. Sometimes, opening the mouth and extracting the Y-shaped fish bone may be possible. Antibiotics must be given. Bone displayed on white piece of paper. This case was reported in "Real Cases" section too.|
|5. Mammary tumour in old cat. The girl who brought in the cat was studying in Australia and her family (typical of many Singaporean cat owners) ignored growing breast tumours which grow fast and become a big lump the size of a golf ball (see mass displayed on piece of white paper). There was not much skin to stitch and a longer incision was necessary. The old cat recovered from general anaesthesia and is well so far. A collar was put around the neck to prevent the cat from licking the wound and biting the stitches out. Breast tumours are common in old dogs too.|
